Apple’s latest iMac powered by Apple’s M1 has been benchmarked and its impressive. The results are in on Geekbench and gains a 56% performance boost over last year’s Intel-powered iMac.

Now that Apple has transplanted the M1 into the new iMac, its benchmark scores are proving to be significantly faster than last year’s iMac with a multi-core score of up to 7625. This score is on par with other M1-powered Macs, Like the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Mac mini. It isn’t clear if these benchmarks are for the entry level model with a 7-core GPU or the higher-end model with an 8-Core GPU, but the term ‘iMac21,1 is likely referring to the entry level model since the higher end models are not available yet.

The current 27-inch iMac powered by the 10th-gen Intel Core i7 only gets a single-core score of 1247 but the single-core score of the M1-powered 24-inch iMac is up to 1739. In terms of multi-core scores, the 27-inch iMac gets a score of 9002 while the 24-inch iMac gets 7625, so the high-end iMac beats it in multi-core benchmarks still.
